Last call for 2015-2016 Central Scholarship applications

Central Scholarship and Loan Referral Service (CSLRS) scholarship applications for the 2015-2016 school year are due February 11, 2015. Area Jewish students can apply for numerous community scholarships with one online application at www.centralscholarship.org.

CSLRS, a nearly 50 year-old program of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh and administered by JF&CS, coordinates the efforts of a group of organizations, agencies and scholarship endowment funds which provide scholarships to local Jewish students enrolled in an accredited institution of higher education.

Any Jewish high school senior or those enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate or technical school with demonstrated financial need and living in Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Washington or Westmoreland counties can apply. Applicants must be a resident of one of these counties for at least two years before applying, and financial need must be demonstrated.

Applications for the 2015-2016 school year are due by February 11, 2015, and first time applicants must be interviewed by CSLRS staff.
